ReGear to Introduce Revolutionary Pain Therapy Device VIVY at CES in Las Vegas

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - January 07, 2016) - ReGear Life Sciences LLC has pioneered VIVY™, the world's first consumer pain management product to use the deep tissue heating and healing powers of diathermy, previously only available in clinics through licensed medical providers. VIVY is a wearable, portable, easy-to-use device that relieves pain, eases muscle tension, improves joint mobility, and speeds healing from chronic pain or joint injuries. ReGear will preview VIVY at CES in Las Vegas, January 6-9, 2016, at Booth #73254 in the Wearables section of the Sands Expo.

For decades, deep tissue heating with shortwave diathermy has been the solution for treating pain and promoting faster healing in physical therapy clinics. It has been the standard of thermotherapy for the U.S. Navy and for professional and collegiate athletics teams. 

CEO Michael Thomas said, "ReGear has pioneered and produced innovative delivery of diathermy, both by creating smaller and more portable generators and by engineering more comfortable and efficient heating coils, with very low power requirements, which make battery operation possible." 

"Now with VIVY, we will be able to deliver deep heat diathermy with a device that integrates the controller, power supply, and heat applicator in a single, slim, wearable belt that consumers can carry with them anywhere," Mr. Thomas continued. "VIVY has the potential to make the deep tissue heating and healing of diathermy accessible to over 100 million people annually in the U.S. who suffer from chronic pain, such as arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia, or diabetic neuropathy, or acute pain from sports injuries."

VIVY will also make pain management smarter, easier, and more convenient through a companion smartphone app that can schedule treatments, track results after every therapy session, and provide helpful information and tips.

VIVY is currently an investigational device only and is not yet available for sale in the U.S.A.

VIVY will launch a crowdfunding campaign in February 2016. For more information about VIVY, please visit
